We’re showing our appreciation for the health care industry by donating hundreds of gift cards to essential front-line workers at four central Pennsylvania hospitals.

In early May, we committed to donating 100% of food and beer sales through our To-Go Curbside service between Sunday, May 3, and Wednesday, May 6, to participating hospitals. Tröegs customers really showed up for the effort, and in the end, we donated $39,000 to this timely cause. The donation was distributed evenly among regional hospitals in the form of $50 Tröegs gift cards, with a goal to reach as many health care workers as possible, all of whom have been working tirelessly since COVID-19 has continued to spread across the nation.

We chose to support the following hospitals for this endeavor: Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center (Hershey, PA); Lancaster General Hospital (Lancaster, PA); and two UPMC Pinnacle Hospitals (Harrisburg, PA and West Shore).

“Our health care workers are absolutely essential during this uncertain time,” said Chris Trogner, co-founding brother of Tröegs. “We’re grateful for their selfless commitment to ensuring the safety of our community, and we hope these gift cards provide a bright spot for these workers.”

“On behalf of everyone at UPMC Pinnacle, we want to express our gratitude to Tröegs for supporting our health care workers as we care for the communities that rely on us during this unprecedented time,” Christian Caicedo, MD, president of Dauphin Region, UPMC Pinnacle. “Thank you for your help and reminding us that we are all in this together.”
